A wheelchair athlete who was injured after organizers of a San Diego, Calif., marathon altered the course has been awarded $4 million.
The San Diego Union-Tribune reported a jury has ruled for Craig Blanchette in a negligence lawsuit against organizers of the 2014 Rock `n’ Roll marathon.

A representative for the race organizer, Competitor Group Inc., told the Union-Tribune that the company doesn’t comment on ongoing litigation.
